The Beths Announce National Tour + Share Album 'Future Me Hates Me'

The Beths Announce National Tour + Share Album 'Future Me Hates Me'

Friday 10th August, 2018 9:00AM

Auckland guitar-pop crew The Beths have unveiled their hugely anticipated debut album Future Me Hates Me, and are celebrating with a nationwide tour in September. Picking up plaudits from the likes of Rolling Stone magazine (who named their single 'Happy Unhappy' a Song of the Summer) and releasing their album via US tastemakers Carpark Records, to say The Beths are on a roll is putting it mildly. New songs like 'Uptown Girl' stand shoulder to shoulder with previously released favourites such as the title track and 'Whatever', while infectious hooks and endearingly reflective wordplay leap out from every twist and turn of their pop-punk insta-classic collection. 

You can catch the team of Elizabeth StokesJonathan Pearce, Benjamin Sinclair and Ivan Luketina-Johnston in Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin, Christchurch and Queenstown, supported by musical pals Hans Pucket for (almost) all dates. Check out the tour details, watch a colourful new video for their latest anthem 'You Wouldn't Like Me' created by Ezra Simons and Gussie Larkin of Earth Tongue, and stream Future Me Hates Me below...

Press release:

After a whirlwind of dates in the US, UK, EU and Australia, The Beths will be returning to our shores for five shows in mid September in support of their newly minted album 'Future Me Hates Me' which comes out today, August 10th via Carpark Records in Washington DC. Anyone who's seen The Beths live already can testify to their electric magnetism and fun arrangements.

“There’s a lot of sad sincerity in the lyrics,” says Stokes, “That relies on the music having a light heart and sense of humor to keep it from being too earnest.” Channeling their stew of personal-canon heroes while drawing inspiration from contemporaries like Alvvays and Courtney Barnett, The Beths serve up deeply emotional lyrics packaged within heavenly sounds that delight in probing the limits of the pop form. “That’s another New Zealand thing,” Stokes concludes with a laugh. “We’re putting our hearts on our sleeves—and then apologizing for it.”

The band will be joined on all dates by Wellington's Hans Pucket, except Queenstown - where Fables will be supporting the band.
